stomach spasms

Recommended Posts

Before I was diagnosed with POTS and taking any meds, I occasionally had what I can only describe as "stomach palpitations" - it felt like heart palpitations, but they were in my stomack! Not sure if that's what you're feeling.  It had gotten to where I was dizzy and lightheaded day in and day out so it's hard to tell if they coincided with any of those feelings. Sorry you're having to deal with this.

@jeff_jefferson2 - I am not sure if this is what you are experiencing but I get esophageal spasms that at times feel like palpitations. Sometimes I can only describe them as "Hick-ups" in my chest/throat area, definitely different from actual palpitations.

This is an excellent way to explain it. It's like a skipped beat but in my stomach...

Did you get any answers as to what it was?

Yes - they are esophageal spasms from reflux. They do not hurt but feel like palpitations that are not in the heart area.
